First Hand Experience

One of my husband's co-workers, the one I made the baby items for, is having issues finding affordable day care for his two boys.  I'm not going to go into detail of what I think this guy should be doing as it isn't me in his shoes.

For now J's co-worker has been allowed to bring his two sons into the work place.  Picture a five year old and a two year old running a muck around highly sensitive items and equipment.  The co-worker is the one that makes the group over staffed and it looks as though the soldier won't be allowed to re-enlist as he doesn't have his TS clearance so it isn't like he is allowed to handle the equipment or do the work.  How this guy thinks he'll get his TS in the time he has left I have no clue.

Well what I'm getting to is that J is now learning how to babysit and work at the same time.  I'm proud of him.  He changed his very first poop diaper yesterday.  Of course it was under direction of the kid's father to make sure J knew what to do.  Of course it wasn't one of those blow out dumps but an easier mess to clean up.

J is getting a taste of what it will be like to be a father.  He now knows a bit what it is going to be like for me to work from home and take care of a kid.  Not easy but it has to get done right?  I say a taste because disposable diapers are being used and J isn't having to watch by himself the kids or do laundry or cook meals for the kids either.  But hey we all had to learn somewhere sometime.

We agreed to use cloth diapers.  I did inform J that most cloth diapers start at the eight pound weight so that when our kid/s is/are born there is the possibility that we might have to use disposable diapers for a bit depending on how small the kid/s is/are.

As you can see I'm very hopeful that this FET will work. 

The symptoms I'm having with the Lupron are really mild this time.  Very few headaches, the oily skin issue has passed, the bloating was just the first day and the cravings are gone too, and the mood swings are but mild this time around.  Today was the last day of the birth control. 

About four more weeks until the transfer. 

Isn't this cool!  A cloth baby wipe warmer.  I so want one of these.

  5. Practice is good :)

    Don't waste your money on wipe warmers, though. Silly invention. I've got everything crossed that you guys get to put this practice to good use. XXX

    1. We were planning on doing cloth baby wipes. J likes the idea of the wipes warmer. Probably because he hates to even touch cold baby wipes. He uses them out in the field and he muttered under his breath how much he detests how cold they are.
